D2 Holds Team Building Day in Manchester

As the D2 team continues to grow, a recent social event gave new starters and staff the chance to get together and explore our home city of Manchester.

Held on July 7th, the team building session saw our staff take part in a city-wide treasure hunt.

Teams were directed to Manchester landmarks – including the Alan Turing memorial in Sackville Park – and given questions to answer.

Since lockdown rules were lifted, D2’s Social Committee has been tasked with arranging biannual social events for our growing team.

With many staff working remotely or based in clients’ offices, these events are an invaluable opportunity to build in-person relationships.

At D2, the well-being of our staff is a priority, and we recognise that strong relationships are key to good workplace mental health.

“We have almost doubled in size since COVID first hit”, explained Systems Administration Manager, Tricia Rogers, who helped to arrange the event. “We’ve had so many new starters, and it’s really important to get everyone together in person.

“Teams is great, but there’s nothing like having a drink or a chat in person. Activities like the treasure hunt are a chance for everyone to collaborate, and also help to build trust.”

Since D2’s launch in 2011, our team has grown exponentially, and is now 90-strong (including sub-contractors). Social events are open to everyone, with staff invited to submit ideas for new events and activities.
